new documentary exposes conflicts of interest among chemical companies

The Idiot CycleEveryone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud.” – Dr. Linus Pauling, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Nobel Prize in chemistry

A new documentary looks at some of the major chemical makers – including Dow Chemical, Bayer, Dupont, Monsanto – and how they produce cancer causing chemicals that pollute our environment, while at the same time, they are developing cancer treatments and profiting from the very disease their products are causing.

The film also examines genetically modified organisms (GMOs), a relatively new and untested technology being introduced into our bodies without our consent or knowledge and without proper government regulations.

It is this inane process – of big chem companies wielding their financial power and infiltrating the government to get their dangerous products on the market, and then for the same companies to profit from the diseases they cause – that makes up the idiot cycle. Round and round we go, and where we stop, nobody knows.

The film’s website, theidiotcycle.com documents a brief polluting history of each of the major Big Chem players: Dow | BASF | Bayer | Dupont | Astrazeneca | Monsanto

The site also shares suggestions on how to stop the cycle:

#1 – Don’t donate or support non-profit organizations that are sponsored or operated by companies who produce cancer-causing chemicals. Conflict of interest charities include: Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Komen Foundation, American Cancer Society, Revlon Run, Avon 3-day run, and the Estée Lauder Foundation.

#2 – Consume less.

#3 – Stop the bullshit. Stop the greenwashing.

#4 – Return to sender. (This is one of our favorites!) They recommend you “Take a label from a product, highlight the carcinogen on the ingredients label, send back to the company. Watch the crap pile up at their doorstep.”

#5 – Send a postcard.

#6 – Ride your bike or take public transportation.

#7 – Support local, organic, polycultural farmers.

#8 – Make your home self-sufficient and non-toxic.

#9 – Call up your city council members and mayor.

#10 – Do it for those you love. Do it for those who have cancer.

See the site for detailed instructions on each tip. We are very excited at Planet Thrive to finally see a movie that connects the dots in this way for consumers. Can’t wait to see it! Watch the trailer right now:
